"The creative child who is drawn to writing or telling tales will love this book -- it invites the reader to help the main character complete (and perhaps endlessly revise) her imagined stories. A teacher loans a girl a magic book of stories, but the student finds the book devoid of words. At first forlorn, the girl hears a whisper that encourages her to invent her own narratives. The girl's exhilaration for creation also leads her to spin adventures inspired by what she sees outside of the book."— Todd Wellman
"This is a beautiful book about imagination. When the words disappear from a special book, a little girl has to make up a story for each picture. Clever fox, who caught the words in his net, asks her for a surprising favor after he returns the words. The breathtaking detailed mixed media illustrations are a perfect match for the story. As a bonus, readers can look for a fox, rabbit, bees and a crown on each page! This is a unique and very special book for all ages!" --Barbara— From Barbara's Staff Recommendations
Step inside the pages of a little girl's magical book as she discovers the profound and inspiring notion that we each bring something different to the same story. Two-time Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski debuts as an author in this tender picture book about the joy of reading.
